Menzies’ wallflower is a rare plant found in coastal dune plant communities from Humboldt County to Monterey County. The variety yadonii has a limited distribution on the Monterey Coast. A short lived perennial which forms a rosette of dark-green fleshy spoon-shaped leaves. Dense clusters of bright-yellow fragrant flowers bloom in the spring. A natural along the coast where it will thrive in sun with good drainage and moderate to infrequent water. Light shade in hot regions. A perfect companion with other coastal bluff plants such as seaside daisy, sea thrift, Douglas Iris or checkerbloom. Bee and butterfly favorite.
